Soil Health, Plant Nutrition, and Human Health:
Making the Connections
Dan Kittredge
Founder and Executive Director
Bionutrient Food Association<>
Thursday, February 28, 2019, 3 - 4 pm
Natural Resources Building, Room 225

Dan has been an organic farmer for more than 30 years, and is the founder and Executive Director of the Bionutrient Food Association, an 8-year old non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “increase quality in the food supply”. His experience managing farms and developing sustainable agriculture techniques has connected him with farmers around the world. Dan is passionate about raising the quality of nutrition in our food supply through collaboration with committed individuals and organizations who support growing and eating really good food. Known as one of the leading proponents of “nutrient density”, Dan has worked to demonstrate the connections between plant health, soil health, carbon sequestration, crop nutritional value, flavor and human health. Out of these efforts was born the Real Food Campaign, which has engineered the prototype of a hand-held consumer spectrometer that is designed to test nutrient density at point of purchase, thereby empowering the consumer to choose for nutrient quality.

Sponsors: Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition, Department of Horticulture, Department of Community Sustainability, Center for Regional Food Systems, C.S. Mott Chair of Sustainable Agriculture
